Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Nikon B700 and Sony HX400V side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon B700 has external dimensions of 125 x 85 x 107 mm (4.92 x 3.35 x 4.21″) and weighs 565 g (1.25 lb / 19.93 oz) (including batteries). Sony HX400V has external dimensions of 130 x 93 x 103 mm (5.1 x 3.67 x 4.06″) and weighs 660 g (1.46 lb / 23.28 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Nikon B700 and the Sony HX400V. Nikon B700 is 5mm narrower and 8mm shorter than Sony HX400V but it is also 4mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Nikon B700 and Sony HX400V.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon B700 and Sony HX400V.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon B700 is significantly lighter (95g ) than the Sony HX400V which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Nikon Coolpix B700 nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon B700 and Sony HX400V's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
Sony HX400V features a Tilting-only screen
which is mostly only good for shooting from waist or over-the-head levels. On the other hand, Nikon B700 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which is more flexible and useful, especially for taking selfies and video.
